Course Objectives: The vocabulary, communicative situations and structures of  SPAN 2  (Chapter 5 – Chapter 10 in Dos Mundos ) will prepare you to  successfully: talk about your career, future and planned activities describe your home and your neighborhood talk about your experience in the past order food in a restaurant, serve a meal and shop for food discuss your childhood, adolescence life and your family memories describe the climate, geography, and transportation gain awareness about Hispanics abroad know more about the Spanish-speaking countries (culture, food, geography, cities) show off your language abilities and cultural adaptivness Bear in mind that it is unrealistic to assume that you can learn language by just coming to class three times a week. In-class meetings are  supposed to provide space for you to practice and receive help with your Spanish, to put what you know to work, and to smooth particularly  difficult points. Your proficiency, i.e. the progress measured in terms of what you can do with Spanish – depends entirely on your  commitment to practice inside and outside the classroom. The Media Lab in Varsi Hall allows to further practice your listening, viewing, and  speaking skills. In addition, the abundance of Spanish media (TV, radio, newspapers) in our geographic area provides you with even more
